Why do some people seem to constantly manage to succeed, while others fail despite a lot of work put in? The answers lies in the success mindset. People who succeed think, act and behave in a manner that differentiates them from the others, and this mindset is the secret key to their success.
Advice from Masters: Quotes & Tips on developing a Success Mindset
Success as a Birthright
Think differently: Successful people talk, think, and approach situations, challenges, and problems differently than most people—and they definitely think about money differently
Treat success as your right: One of the greatest turning points in my life occurred when I stopped casually waiting for success and instead started to approach it as a duty, obligation, and responsibility. I literally began to see success as an ethical issue—a duty to my family, company, and future If you are able to repeatedly attain success, it becomes less of a “success” and more of a habit—almost everyday life for some people.
Because successful individuals approach success as a duty, obligation, and responsibility—and even a right!

Live & breathe success: This group, maybe 2 or 3 percent of the total, doesn’t let pessimism dictate, doesn’t believe in surrendering to suppressive forces, doesn’t believe in crawling.

These people find life stimulating, rewarding, worthwhile. These people look forward to each new day, each new encounter with other people, as adventures to be lived fully.David J Schwartz – The Magic of Thinking Big
Willing to do whatever it takes
Success is simple. First, you decide what you want specifically; and second, you decide you’re willing to pay the price to make it happen—and then pay that price.
People who consistently succeed are those who can commit all of their resources, mental and physical, to work together toward achieving a task.

Assume control and increase responsibility by adopting the position that you make all things happen, even those things you have previously considered to not be under your control.Grant Cardone – Author – The 10x rule / Sell or Be Sold

A mastermind is a group of people, who meet to share knowledge, skills and resources, to work towards a common purpose. While the core concept of a mastermind is linked to a very focused and structured group, we focus more on a broader understanding – how to surround yourselves with people that are valuable influences on your life.
Dominate – Don’t Compete
